in america. >>> but first, a picture none of us ever imagined or feared we would ever have to see. the first funerals of the 20 young children killed at the sandy hook school in newtown, connecticut, on friday. 6-year-old jack pinto was laid to rest today. in his obituary, his family wrote, "jack will forever be remembered for the immeasurable joy he brought to all who had the pleasure of knowing him, a joy whose wide reach belied his six years." he was buried in the jersey of his favorite team member of the new york giants. his family said he could get whatever he wanted just by batting his long eyelashes. listen now to what may be one of the most heartbreaking of all in this ghastly tragedy. parents talking about the moment they learned their daughter had died in the carnage at sandy hook school. >> she was a ball of fire. she ruled the roost. she -- >> our little ceo, we called her. she was -- she was the boss. >> i got to the firehouse. >> we had no idea at this point. we thought okay, the reports are that one or two people may have been injured. >> i walked around the firehouse. maybe s
of america. chuck todd is nbc's chief white house correspondent and political director, and chris cillizza is managing editor of postpolitics.com. gentlemen, i know we all saw this. this is what we used to call the topic sentence. i think this was the most telling, action-oriented piece of what the president said last night up in connecticut. let's listen to it now. >> in the coming weeks, i will use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens from law enforcement to mental health professionals to parents and educators in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this. because what choice do we have? we can't accept events like this as routine. are we really prepared to say that we're powerless in the face of such carnage? that the politics are too hard? are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom? >> chuck todd, you know, gun control was probably not in many politicians' songbook going into this coming year, but now it is. reality, reality checks, reality bites. do you think the
and to that point you talk about guns as an infectious disease in america. we have 300 million guns in america. almost one per citizen. is the disease too far in to the body to really do something? we have senator feinstein talking about banning assault weapons and can't talk about retroactively banning. we can only talk about going forward. are there too many guns for america to be able to go back? >> i don't really think so at all. we can make a big dent. i can talk about where i'm from which is massachusetts and we have sensible gun control laws and it's very hard for criminals in massachusetts to get guns from massachusetts and so what they have to do is somebody brings guns in to them from new hampshire and vermont and then south carolina up the iron pipeline. we would do very well in massachusetts if we had a one gun per month law nationally to make it so it's not profitable to bring guns in to the inner city gangs. i think there's lots of things to do. and i just want to mention one thing which gun owners can do. we are trying to push this notion of the 11th commandment of gun safety an

works. there are examples around the work. even in america with lax weak gun protections there are in fact some regulations in some places and they make a difference. let's treat gun violence like any public health crisis which i would say losing 30,000 lives a year would qualify as a crisis. we need to treat it like the threat to public health and families that it is, treat a gun like any other consumer product. this is how we slash the death rate. enforcement and education. for guns it starts when congress stops being intimidated by the extremists and then just do what the majority of gun owners agree we should do. we new the assault weapon ban which maybe we'll introduce under the leadership of our dear friend and colleague, care lynn mccarthy. close the gun show loophole. for starters, things that n.r.a. members agree with. let's care as much about real guns as we do about toy gun consumer protection. to start us down the road of making our children safer by treating children's gun safety like their auto safety. all the air bags, anti-drunk driving campaigns, child se

in america and where you can buy one and what kinds of guns people are allowed to have, that all kind of goes out the window. people can just down load their chosen weapon at home and have it made manifests at their desk, as a fully functioning real-life weapon. we are not far off of that. what's that going to do to work on laws. we have faced technological changes to thinking about guns before. in the late 1980s, advances made it seem inevitable that gunman ewe factturer firms, like glock, for example, would start making fully plastic weapons. and since metal detectors and x-ray machines were and are a major part of how we keep guns out of places that they are not allowed to be in this country, the u.s. congress in 1988 passed something called the undetectable firearms act. it said basically, your gun has to be detectable in an x-ray scanner. it has to have the equivalent x-ray signature of 3.7 ounces of stainless steel, even if you take out the magazine and the stock and the grips. even with those parts taken off, the remaining guts of the gun need to have a substantial metal component. so
, the united states of america, influenced every part of his life and set him apart even in the senate. he was a fierce advocate and senior member of several committees and the way he conducted himself commanded respect from all who he worked with. his legacy is not only loving family that he leaves behind, it can be seen in every mile of every road, every nature preserve, every facility that makes hawaii a safer place. he fulfilled his dream of creating a better hawaii. he gave us access to the resources and facilities of the mainland states that he took for granted. tomorrow will be the first day since the allied became a state in 1959 that daniel inouye will not be representing us in congress. every child born in hawaii will learn of daniel inouye, a man who changed islands forever. i join all the people of hawaii tonight in praying for his wife, irene, is son, his daughter-in-law and stepdaughter jennifer. and his granddaughter maggie that really tickled his life, whenever i had a chance to chat with him we talked about maggie. and they brought so much delay in his life and carries his
,000 people in america killed with guns. we've done nothing. i mean, you know, i don't know at what point you have to say enough is enough. we've been killing 34 americans every single day. that's bigger than virginia tech. every single day. and you done cover it because it's 34 separate occurrences around the country. and it doesn't grab the public's imagination, psyche, sympathy, there's just-- you don't get a visceral reaction when it's people you don't know and can't see. >> rose: have we got that now, the visceral reaction that this is somehow different because it children. >> i sure hope so i was asked today is it different with children. it is in the public psyche. but i think if you talk to the families of teenagers and even adults who were killed before the sympathyes with their loss is exactly the same as the parents of young people. but young people that people look and say oh my god what are we really doing here. >> rose: what is your criticism of the president of the united states? >> well, i don't know that criticism is the right word. i believe that his job is to lead. when you
launcher and a bayonet mount. in fact, it's the most popular rifle in america. owned by some 3 million people. this model at bud's gun shop just sold out online this very afternoon. another model seen here from the bushmaster's website shows the many features of such a weapon, and heard on the video, a chilling reminder of the sound that rang through the school as the shooting began on friday morning. a horrifying noise, if ever there was one. i want to bring in nbc news justice correspondent pete williams with us from washington. pete, this weapon that lanza used at sandy hook elementary, a military-style rifle with 30 rounds in the clip, hundreds more at the ready, this is legal in a state with an assault weapons ban. tell our audience how is that possible? >> it's possible because of the way that assault weapons are defined in the law. this was true in the original assault weapons ban that was a federal one from 1994 to 2004. what it does is it says if a weapon possesses a certain number of features that the law considers to be primarily for military purpose such as a flash suppress

the courageous men and women that made america what it is, i'm reminded we too went through challenging periods, when america was divided by a bitter civil war 150 years ago. president abraham lincoln had the vision to pull us together toward a shared goal of peace and prosperity. growing up in california i didn't know much about the arab world. then after graduating from the university of california at berkeley, i traveled to north africa as peace corps engineer. i worked as an english teacher in morocco two years and quickly grew to love this part of the world. since joining the service i spent almost my entire career in middle east and africa. one of the things that impressed me were people old enough to have lived and traveled in the united states when we had closer relations. those days are back. we had 1,700 libyans apply for fullbright grants to study in the united states this year, more than any other country in the world. we know that libya is still recovering from an intense period of conflict. there are many courageous libyans who bear the scars of that battle. we are happy we have b

in australia are state laws as they mainly are in america, and the national government does not have the power to make national laws. we needed the state laws to all change to be uniform at a very high standard. as a result of those changes has been that levels of gun deaths in australia are now half of what they were before, and we've not had a mass shooting in all of that time in the last 16 years. so the laws are a resounding success. yet, australia still has hunting, we still win medals in shooting at the olympics. masculinity in australia has not diminished.
